Tot Talk: Time to Clean the House..

No one said you have to do everything at once and even when time seems short, if you can manage one task a day, things should start to work themselves out. Take a blank calendar and fill it in accordingly so easier tasks are on days where your day is go, go, go and reserve the more difficult ones for days when things are a little slower.  Here is my calendar..

I constantly change it up, but it defiantly keeps me more organized, it motivates me and I can...,
plan a day off when ever I want!! Yeah!
To help with the load, set up a calendar so that everyone in the family has a job to do, even small kids can do tiny jobs.  Keep it fun, reward with star stickers, treats or a special outing at the end of the month.

Moms... if you want to become more motivated to clean your house, invite someone over for tea, you'll be amazed at how fast you get things cleaned up. You can also use a timer. This works really well with kids. Try to beat your last "record" for cleaning. Kids will actually get excited trying to beat the clock. 

Tour a home:

Just for fun take a tour at a show home. Make sure you bring your camera and take pictures. Pictures will help you in the decorating department of your home or look at pictures of homes in magazines, this can be a great motivator to clean and decorate your home. 


Family Cleanup:

Set up a cleaning or organizing block of time. Inform the whole family and have a reward for when it’s all done. (A movie, dinner, or shopping trip). Let everyone in the family have a turn at controlling the music, and give some limited chore choices to keep your work-force happy. This works great for seasonal chores.

Plan a Garage Sale:

Planning a garage sale can be a great way to clear out clutter. You’ll be more likely to get rid of things if you think you can make a little money for something else you really want. Plan to donate the leftovers to charity, without even bringing them back in the house. Even kids will be more likely to let go of items if it means they've got some cash for their piggy bank or that they are giving their items to children who have less.
